    Default DP armband, real or fake, info please.

    hello folks,

    as you can see im having a clearout/inventry today!

    very little online about this item (that i can find)

    have owned this item for about 20 odd years, only identifying mark really is the buckle which is marked "prima"

    Hello, it's French for Défense Passive. You can find also DP on French helmets. Painted or with a badge on the helmet.
